This paper provides an analytical review of empirical studies of the impact of entrepreneurship on economic growth. We try to analyze the variation of this impact across different countries, estimation methods, definitions and measures of entrepreneurship and economic growth. We find that entrepreneurship is a multidimensional concept measured by different ways in all studies selected such as; start ups, TEA, self employment, etc. We find that the high heterogeneity detected between the results of studies is due to the choice of measures of entrepreneurship on the one hand and to the type of country (developed or developing) on the other. Consequently, the type of the relationship between entrepreneurship and economic growth strongly depends on the choice of entrepreneurship measure and the type of country studied.
